  • No tethering on Sprint smartphones w/ everything plans?

    After looking over some spec's for Sprint's 2010 lineup over at BGR, upon arriving at the very last bullet point my train of thought gets stopped dead in it's tracks. It simply states "No tethering for phones that require "Everything Plans". Essentially, that puts the kibosh on all smartphones. Pardon me if I'm over reacting, but a smartphone in supposed to be, plans included. If I'm paying for these falsely advertised "Everything/Unlimited" plans, I better sure...
  • AT&T claims network needs “more work” before iPhone tethering can be unlocked

    While such news is nothing new, AT&T; is still standing by previous statements made in regards to iPhone tethering -- that is, that the network needs further work and upgrades before such a feature can launch successfully. Other examples of needed work were seen with the delay of MMS and VoIP apps on the iPhone, though, this past month and more recently this week have seen reversals on both stalemates. Tethering still remains a locked down feature however as in plain terms, their network simply...
  • As we welcome fall, we do so without iPhone MMS/Tethering

    So much for late summer eh AT&T;? I'm so beyond fed up with the entire company as a whole. Their god awful network is no surprise to many, nor is there any chance in hell they are going to garner any hope or praise from me...let alone a contract extension. Staring at dropping temperatures and shorter days, I figured it would be fitting to highlight that as we enter the fall season, iPhone owners nation wide here in the US are still without the most requested features: MMS and Tethering. The...

    When consumers have to take fair use matters into their own hands, things can often get complicated and messy.  Much hoop jumping and settings changes are often required leaving the goal being sought one for only the more tech literate.  In regards to tethering iPhone OS 3.0, especially in places where there isn't any support at all, let alone a paid solution, users now have a quick and free option.  Instead of the older methods that have beena round for awhile that involve some file mana...
  • Palm getting all hot and bothered by hacking community

    In what can be scene as an assualt against our free will and "openess", Palm is very quickly putting up a very Apple-like walled garden if you will around their redemption phone, the Palm Pre.  We all know now that Sprint is putting pressure on Palm to confront Pre hackers in regards to tethering the device.  It is now known that Palm is getting even more heavy handed with their control in the form of mandatory webOS updates.  Chalk that up as crap.  While it is nice that they want every...
  • Pre tether hackers beweare, Sprint doesn’t like you nor your tethering needs

    One of the greatest features of smartphones today is the ability to tether said device to a computer effectively turning your phone into a mobile broadband modem allowing you to surf the open web.  However, in what is another prime example of a carrier limiting and restricting the capabilities and pros of hardware is unproudly displayed by none other than Sprint themselves.  It appears that Palm Pre hackers who have already gotten tethering to work on Palm's jesus phone and posted the how-...

  • AT&T drops a lead ball in a glass house

    Yesterday at WWDC, the world found out about the next iteration of the iPhone and all that good and bad that is coming with it. While we all know about and are excited about things such as voice control, better camera/video capture support, faster process, etc., the real cream of the crop was the announcing of MMS and tethering support. However, one big, large, fat, caveat remains. The sole U.S. carrier of choice, A suck and T won't have MMS ready until the end of the summer. As far as tet...
  • Blackberry Storm + Mac + Launch2Net = Wireless Freedom
    by Mike
    Posted May 8th, 2009 at 1:53 pm
    The Blackberry Storm is by far one of the riskiest moves ever taken on by RIM. Be eschewing the Blackberry's tried and true keyboard, the Storm had to rely on it's tight business integration and bullet proof email to make up for phsyical shortcomings. While the popularity and effectiveness at which RIM's first keyboardless phone was carried out is debateable, one thing is for sure - the Storm is a remarkable device. If you are a heavy traveler, you no doubt also enjoy the Blackberry's relat...
  • MMS and tethering locked out for AT&T users in latest iPhone OS 3.0 beta 5 build
    by Mike
    Posted May 7th, 2009 at 2:56 am
    Oh god, this isn't the greatest way to start the morning.  Reports are flooding the web of an impending nightmare, the possibility that AT&T users won't have the ability to view MMS or tether their shiny new iPhone 3.0 or even those rocking the new OS.  On top of that, it seems as if a new iTunes 8.2 pre-release 2 is making it impossible to change the carrier file meaning no tethering on AT&T by means of a little hackery.  As the picture above clearly indicates, Apple is either be...
  • Android Marketplace/T-Mobile following Apple/AT&T…banning tethering apps.
    by Mike
    Posted March 31st, 2009 at 9:10 am
    Android and the Android Marketplace have been hailed as the "most open" app store.  Developers and consumers have free rein.  Besdies, Android is based off of Linux meaning everything should be up to the user base anyway...right?   Wrong?  According to a peeved Android developer who goes by Seth, an app he contributed towards was banned from the Marketplace for violating the Developer Distribution Agreement, more specifically a T-Mobile clause that bans tethering.  His app isn't the on...
